knoppix Cant see hard drvie from gui


Im experimenting. I loaded knoppix, my older version on cd used to work great but I suppose the 2005 cd just met its end of life. The machine Im on boots fine to Windows I just want to play around with Knoppix.

Anyway, I downloaded burned and loaded KNoppix 7.4. Im on it as I type.

pix@Microknoppix:/dev$ cat /proc/partitions
major minor #blocks name

240 0 10608000 cloop0
252 0 2115392 zram0
8 0 244198584 sda
8 1 1536000 sda1
8 2 233490432 sda2
8 3 9170944 sda3
11 0 4182848 sr0


and

knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders, total 488397168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x17807de0

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 2048 3074047 1536000 27 Hidden NTFS WinRE
/dev/sda2 * 3074048 470054911 233490432 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3 470054912 488396799 9170944 17 Hidden HPFS/NTFS

That crusty old version of KNoppix .. I think 5.x era showed a hda1 or sda1 on the desktop. I could just navigate that through the windows files.

So I guess Im asking... how do I get the harddrive to show up in the gui .. or how do I unhide the drives ?

Its been awhile since I've played with knoppix... Look at the output of the mount command without options. It will show all currently mounted filesystems. I don't remember if it tries to mount all hard drive filesytems. You might have to manually mount /dev/sda2.
